End of summer skydiving!!!!

EDIT!!!! We didn't get to go last 2 weeks back since it got rained out, so we're heading up there sunday morning!



Oct 3rd/SUNDAY = Round 2 skydiving.... Who's coming with!?!? Need to figure out by the end of next week... All that is required is a $50 deposit (If you want to hold a spot towards potential discounts) and you pay the rest the day you jump.... No camping this time (Except a few possibly) but will be spending most of the day up there... Food/drinks and the greatest adrenaline rush you will ever feel.


Holla @ chur boy!

Tom

Starts at 209 or 189 (I can't remember) I believe and goes down from there pending how many people are going. My brother is handling the scheduling so I'm not sure how many are going just yet, but we have quite a few repeats going from the 1st trip and many additional so all goes well I wouldn't be surprised if we end up getting a decent discount again.

The first time we had 20 people go, which was AWESOME! And we received a discount down to 149 per. And worth every freaking penny! It was my first time going so I got the video with still shots which was another 120 but again, I'm not sure I mentioned this but.... WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

As of now I have EVERY reason to believe were already in the double digits of people going.

Update: Discount is DEFINITELY gonna happen! Now it's just a matter of how much!

Looks like all the "VETS" are going, AND 9-14 rookies THUS FAR!

Here's a detailed breakdown:
‎5-9 People
$189.00

10-14 People
$179.00

15-20 People
$169.00

21-29 People
$159.00
(pretty sure this is what we qualified for back in July.)

30+ People
$159.00

Chicago SkyDive. Isn't that the place with the sketchy safety record and the owner died some time back? That was enough doubt for me to go to Chicagoland Skydiving in Hinckley.

Ummmm if you call not a SINGLE tandem "Incident" in over 7years nor a single tandem death EVER "Sketchy"??? Sounds like your sources are a little skewed.

I'd consider any incident or death in any timeframe sketchy but that's just me. I want to live.
